Britney Spears

Chewing Gum During

'X Factor' Interview

5/15/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0515_britney_spears-ipadBritney Spears spoke to FOX cameras before she took the stage at yesterday's Upfronts ... and she did so while chewing a piece of gum. Ding dang, y'all!!!

Britney ditched the gum by the time she went in front of the advertisers ... so clearly someone caught a glimpse of Brit's red carpet faux pas and corrected it. 

For what it's worth ... Simon Cowell was chewing away too!

The gum wasn't the only thing Britney was chompin' on during yesterday's festivities -- Brit took a few bites out of her fingernails, too.

She needs to stop doing her own make-up...she's starting to look like 'Tanning Mom', the Cheeto-beast.

She looks very uncomfortable, it wouldn't surprise me if she suffers from some sort of social anxiety disorder. She doesn't need to be in the spotlight, if her family cared for her as much as they care for her money they would spare her this. I'm sure she would rather be anywhere else at that moment, it's written on her face, it's painful to see her expressions.

I can't stand watching people chew gum. They look so stupid and low class.

OMG~!! You people are SO damn hypercritical, not just waiting to pounce when someone fails - but hoping that they do so is really BAD karma. FYI: chewing gum helps when you can't smoke a cig, or when you're nervous - and given the microscope Ms. Spears is under, can you blame her for chewing gum or biting a nail. SHE'S HUMAN duh~!!

Ok, now TMZ, you are being unfair. Stop scrutinizing the woman's every breath and step. Its not fair and she deserves a chance even if she is stupid enough to allow a boyfriend legal control of her $$$. Naw... I still ain't got over that one!!!

All you people are just haters, if you think you can do a better job then go get a record contract and become a judge. Y'all know nothing about music. And not every celeb is a train wreck. You guys are just jealous of Britney cause shes bringing in the money where you have to wait 2 yrs to make that much. so stop hating and if you don't like Britney then why read about her. dumb nuts

Britney spoke intelligent. Simon was the obvious Gum Chewing Poor etiquette one. And, I cannot believe LA Reid said "We are going to be really sweet to each other." He was very mean to Nicole and Paula on the first season of the X-Factor.

I used to dislike everything about Britney Spears, but now I just feel sorry for her. I never met her in person but just the look in her eyes and on her face ever since she had that break down is so sad, she doesn't seem like the same person..

Nicorette anyone?

Was she wearing shoes? Yes? That's a good start. She has mental problems, that will never change, sadly.
